Graziano Brother Injured in Pinellas County Wreck

LARGO, Fla. (AP) — A dump truck crashed into a car and sent two men to the hospital, including a man whose brother suffered severe brain damage in 2007 while riding in a car with Nick Bollea, son of wrestling star Hulk Hogan.

Tuesday’s crash happened in Largo. Michael Graziano, 23, was a passenger in a Volvo and a local hospital says he’s in critical condition.

Michael’s brother John suffered a broken skull in 2007 when 17-year-old Nick Bollea lost control of his car in Clearwater. John Graziano remains in a minimally conscious state.

The family’s civil suit against the Bolleas was settled in 2010 for an undisclosed sum.

John’s and Michael’s father, Edward Graziano, was sentenced in 2011 to 10 years in prison for plotting to kill his wife, Debra.
